Thanks To All Of You – The Readers!

YJ-Birthday

We’re 4!!!  And the good news we STILL act our age!

Tomorrow, the anniversary of the 2011 NHL Winter Classic in Pittsburgh, is also the anniversary of this blog.  Mother Nature, who chose to let it be warm and rain on the game between the Penguins and Capitals was our first Jagoff post!

 

Hey Mother Nature,

It’s time for the Winter Classic – ya know, kind of a ”Chamber of Commerce  Moment.”

It’s s’posed to be SNOWING not raining, YA JAGOFF!!!

This year we added the Yakkin’ With Ya Jagoff video episodes to the blog.  The short interviews of interesting  Pittsburghers get posted every Wednesday.  The very first episode, with TC everyone’s favorite beer vendor, is below.

If you haven’t seen all of the “Yakkin’ With Ya Jagoff!” video interviews of Pittsburgh personalities, click HERE to get to the Ya Jagoff YouTube Channel!

It’s been fun doing this and it wouldn’t be fun if it wasn’t for all of you.  Thanks so much to all of you who read this silly stuff and a special thanks to those of you who SHARE it with others.  If you have one resolution, maybe it could be to invite 1 more new friend or family member to the blog?  That is, if you’re not proposing to lose weight, save more money or stop smoking.

Thanks and Happy New Year, Ya Jagoffs!!!!  (Meant that with love!)

And the $50 Non Profit Donation Winner Is…

YJ-PensHat_NoTitle

 

On Monday, we posted a blog to help us all feel better.  It was a chance to rant about the 0-4 Steelers and the Pirates losing to the Reds in the 9th inning. (Read it here.)

The deal was, make a comment on the blog and your name would be added into a raffle to win a $50 donation to your favorite non-profit organization.

Well, I put all of the names into my stinky, stenchy Pens hat, rolled them around and pulled out the name of Janice Garvin Nightingale!!

Janice, email us at YaJagoff@comcast.net, Subject Line Non-Profit and tell us your favorite non profit organization to which we should donate $50 on your behalf.

Thanks to all of you who follow and comment.  It is much appreciated!

 

Cool Jagoff Facebook Page Story

This is a special blog post about how AWESOME Pittsburghers are!!!!!!!!

The other day, we ran a make-a-comment contest on the Facebook page.  Winner was to get 4 tickets to tonight’s Pittsburgh Power Arena Football game.  The comments started and then, as you see above, Tony wrote a note about why he would like the tickets.  And THIS was when Pittsburghers showed their REAL colors!!!

As you can see, a bunch of people wanted the tickets but.. as soon as they saw Tony’s personal post, everyone said, “Give Tony the tickets!” etc, etc.

Well, Tony got the tickets for the Power game and we wish him and his daughter a wonderful time!!!

I just had to step out from the normal Jagoffery posts today and tell you this story… Pittsburghers are the bestest!!!!
